To: Zuffa, LLC and whoever else it may concern,

This petition is in support of Joe Rogan being a commentator for the Ultimate Fighting Championship, when it arrives on HBO. His knowledge of Mixed Martial Arts techniques, and his entertaining commentating skills would be sorely missed if absent from all subsequent HBO UFC broadcasts. We plead with Mr. Dana White, Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta to please make this happen.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned



go to the link and sign the petition

Rogan gets some flack from some people, but I honestly like him. He is knowledgeable and is usually unbiased.

On the other hand, I wouldn't mind him getting a new partner...Goldie gets on my nerves.

Good luck.... The HBO guys won't budge and it's their decision not Zuffa's... the contract is already signed, and it took a veto from the CEO of HBO to even get the contract signed... the President of HBO is a dick and hates MMA... he's not going to give in to any of Zuffa's wishes now that the contract is already signed.

Beat me to it. Unfortunately it isn't Zuffa that you want to send this to.

The only petition I would sign is get Rogan away from MMA. I don't care for him at all.

Joe Rogan is awesome!
Do you prefer Couture who sounds like he's recovering from a cold and you can't even hear his voice?!

Joe Rogan is a great commentator, he knows what he's talking about and can explain it in ways that normal people should be able to understand.

We should see how the HBO people do before we try to replace them.
